Further Development

I think Dear Esther sold substantially faster than the developers ever imagined, and can be considered a success.

Does anybody think there may be more development into the game, i.e. extra chapters before the ending? I just can't get enough Dear Esther.

I don't think there will be more of "Dear Esther". It has a solid beginning and an end, all wrapped around a solid story. I think that any more content would thin Dear Esther out from what it is.

But I definitely wouldn't mind seeing a new game/story from the developers in the same style, independent from Dear Esther.

I would like to see small DLC. I can't get enough DE too. But developers (thechineseroom) working on other two new projects and they look really great too. So I don't think, we will see Dear Esther DLC.

Couldn't people/ shouldn't people try to just mod some more content in there?

Like simply modding in some weather like random rain, jump/run, more random spooky stuff would probably add to it no?

I'd be curious if anyone can get the SDK working a little more reliably with Dear Esther. With a bit of tweaking the Portal2 tools will load the assets, and the compiled maps do run in Esther, however I've yet to get foliage or models to work properly in-game. (The former could be an issue as they revamped the detail prop system)

Oooooh, I'm liking that! When they say "open world" I'm hoping that I can roam free and explore unlike DE.
I'm not saying DE did anything wrong by leading you along a path. I just like it when I can stroll around and soak in the atmosphere and the lore/story. Then again, that's just me

Thanks for the link!
